We now have the classic ESB yeast strain from Omega Yeast Labs! A ridiculously thorough flocculator thought to be from a highly regarded English ESB, British Ale VIII has unique fruitiness and noticeable finishing sweetness. It drops out quickly and completely. It is easy to crop, but may need a diacetyl rest. To enhance the fruit, ferment at the recommended temperature ceiling. This yeast is basically the equivalent of the London ESB strains from other popular yeast manufacturers, and is great for the production of a wide range of clean and clear British ales, from bitters and pale ales to porters and stouts!
Each pack now contains 150 mL of yeast slurry to enhance the brewer's experience!

ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
